Just had a drink at La Coronela in the "legendary" Hotel California.There is no doubt that first time visitors are drawn in by the connection to the eponymous Eagles song, but once inside, the place does radiate its own distinct boho chic charm.

You can't visit Todos Santos without visiting the Hotel California.....oh but you really should. It's probably the most over-rated place I have ever gone, thankfully I wasn't staying. We ate in the courtyard out the back so perhaps this isn't La Coronela but I cannot find another reference to the hotel on TripAdvisor. The best thing about it was the... More

This is definitely one of the more popular restaurants in town. It is situated within the Hotel California along the 2-3 block tourist commercial area of the town. The only challenge here is that it is a bit dark and they tend to sell a lot of tourist trinkets before you get into the restaurant. The darkness is a pleasant... More

We had a hard time deciding between the nachos and the guacamole and salsas. So, we did the wise thing. We ordered both. However, if we took a vote, we would still have had a hard time deciding. Both were excellent, with large platters fit for a table full. Margaritas were excellent at well. The hotel deck atmosphere was delightful,... More

Our group really enjoyed this restaurant! I was expecting high priced touristy food, but it was priced well, had great atmosphere, and tasty food. The service was great--the waiter even loaned us his cell to use the flashlight! We went late in the evening, around 8; it was not busy and was super quiet.

Juan, Victor and Yiovanni made our visit fantastic. The Food was very good and the drinks even better. A must see, especially if you are an Eagles fan.

We understand this is not the 'real' Hotel California but it is so colourful that it is worth a visit. We just had drinks and snacks in the outdoor restaurant. A fun afternoon in otherwise sleepy Todos Santos.

Very slow, inattentive service; mediocre food w/ high prices. It was a disappointment, after hearing some recommendations, and it really seems the place is trading on the "Hotel California" name (not the location of the Eagles' song, by the way). Clearly, it's catering to the Gringo tourist crowd, which really seems to be the effort by the town itself, earning... More
